Translation (end of Chapter 3) Process of Translation - (occurs in cytoplasm) • there are 3 RNAs involved in decoding the messenger RNA 1. - ribosomal RNA (rRNA) - forms part of the ribosome • remember: ribosomes = RNA + protein - 2.messenger RNA (mRNA) - contains the information for the sequence of amino acids for a specific protein • the code is a 3 nucleotide base code - 3 nucleotides is acodon • each arrangement decodes into a specific amino acid - 64 possible codons but only 20 amino acids (not a 1-1 correspondence) • 61 code for specific AA, 3 code for a stop signal for translation and the peptide will fall off (like a period at the end of the sentence) - codes are degenerate - more than one codon can code for the same amino acid - table of amino acid possibilities for each codon - figure 3.36 (slides) - 3.transfer RNA (tRNA) - has a clover-leaf structure • two important regions of the tRNA - 1.anticodon - complimentary to the codon • its the complimentary base (codon is A anticodon is U) to form base pair - 2. place where amino acid is attached • different tRNA for different codons • how does it work? - tRNA with attached growing polypeptide is bound to the ribosome - next tRNA (with its appropriate amino acid) will bind to adjacent site - peptide bond is formed - ribosome moves down the mRNA - when the ribosome comes to a stop sequence, there is no tRNA to bind to it, and the peptide will be released • only one specific tRNA works for each codon, no other tRNA will fit (like cinderella’s slippers) Tissues - Chapter 4 - there are two types of tissues: epithelial tissue and connective tissue - Epithelial Tissue • Characteristics: - sheet of cells that covers body surfaces or lines body cavities • located on “free surfaces” functions: - • protection, absorption, secretion, excretion, filtration and sensory reception basement membrane is located directly below the cells - • extracellular matrix - proteins and carbohydrates - barrier between cells and what is underneath - little intercellular space - cells are very close to each other and often touching - no blood vessels - capillaries are located near basement membrane • nutrients diffuse through basement membrane to supply epithelial tissue • Classification of Epithelia - each cell is classified by two names: layers present and shape • classifying by layers: - simple epithelia - one layer thick • all cells come in contact with basement membrane and free surface - stratified epitheli- the cells are in layers (thicker, stronger) • some cells touch basement membrane, some touch surface and some come in contact with neither - pseudostratified epithelia - some cells do not reach the surface but all come in contact with basement membrane • classifying by cell shapes - squamous cells - flat - columnar cells - taller than wide, like a column cuboidal cells - - shaped like a cube • classification types characteristics function location simple squamous air sacs of lungs and in  one layer thick of  diffusion and  small thin capillaries 1. endothelium  1. lining of blood  flat cells filtration where  vessels 2. mesothelium protection is not  2. serous membranes  important and covering organs simple columnar  one layer with tall cells  regular ­ digestive tract,  and lots of cytoplasm secretion and  gallbladder, excretory  ducts of glands absorption; ciliated  ciliated ­ bronchi uterine  type propels mucus tubes and uterus simple cuboidal  one layer and cells  secretion and  salivary glands, sweat  shaped like a cube with absorption glands, ovaries and  lots of cytoplasm kidney tubules stratified squamous thick epithelium where  protection where frictio skin, mouth, vagina and the top layer is flat takes place anus pseudostratified  ciliated secrete mucus and  respiratory tract and  columnar propulsion of mucus sinuses transitional can change shape and  stretching properties bladder and ureter stretch • Classifying by Location mucus membranes - - secretes mucin (slimy stuff that enables surface to be moist and slippery ) • goblet cells found here - synthesize and secrete mucin cutaneous membrane - - found in the “skin”  serous membrane - - combination of connective and epithelial tissues • like a water balloon • outer wall is made up of simple squamous • surrounds heart, stomach, intestines, liver - glandular epithelium - • 1. endocrine glands - not connected to a free surface, secretions are absorbed into the blood stream - when they are absorbed into the blood, then transported through the rest of the body • 2. exocrine glands - directly connected to a free surface, act locally - sweat glands - connected to skin and deposit sweat onto skin but doesn't affect eye balls (local) - 3 classifications according to mode of secretion • merocrine - secretions pass through the membrane (exocytosis) and cell is not harmed - ex: sweat glands, salivary glands, pancreas (with digestive juices), etc • holocrine - accumulate secretion and basically die and release the substance - ex: sebaceous glands - secretes seban (fatty, oil like substance) • apocrine - a part of the cell will bud off - ex: mammary glands - Classifying by structure • duct structure - 1. simple - duct does not branch • intestinal glands - 2. compound - duct branches • stomach glands •structure of the secretory parts - 1. tubular - does not branch • oil glands - 2. alveolar - duct branches • mammary and salivary glands - Connective Tissue • general characteristics: - locatio: many places throughout the body • fat, tendons, fills body spaces, attaches skin to the rest of the body - function: varies based on makeup and location • protection, support, binds, things together, storage of fat characteristics - • very abundant - lots in our bodies • cells are not close together, widely spaced • good blood supply - lots of blood vessels going through the tissue - makeup: • cells - different types of cells in the different types of connective tissue • extracellular matrix - ground substance - could be very watery or very hard - fibers - different types of connective tissues have different amounts of each type of fibers •1. collagenous fibers - made of collagen, large, strong, white •2. reticular fibers - relatively short and branched •3. elastic fibers - can stretch and coil - different types: • connective tissue proper and cartilage A) Connective Tissue Proper - • made up of fibroblasts that make and secrete the proteins that make up the different types of fiber (or extracellular matrix) • 1. loose connective tissue - few, widely spread fibers - a) areolar tissue - contains watery, brown substance and relatively few fibers • all three fiber types but collagenous is most abundant • functions: binds skin to underlying tissues, surrounds blood vessels and fills body spaces - b) adipose tissue - basically fat, has watery brown substance - c) reticular tissue - high concentration of reticular fibers • function: forms skeleton and serves as a base for other cells • location: lymphoid organs (lymph nodes, bone marrow and spleen) • 2. dense connective tissue - dense, closer together fibers - a) regular - primarily parallel collagen fibers, few elastic fibers, very strong • function: attaches muscles to bones and bones to bones • location: tendons and ligaments • does not heal well because there is not a good blood supply - b) irregular - contains irregularly interwoven collagen fibers • function: withstands tension in different directions for structural strength • location: organ/joint fibrous capsules, dermis - c) elastic - large amounts of elastic fibers • function: allows recoil, maintains blood flow through arteries and aids recoil of lungs • location: vocal cords, surrounding large arteries and aorta - B) Cartilage • characteristics: made of of chondroblast cells (immature) and chondrocytes - (mature) - has a little bit “give” unlike bones (hyaline) • extracellular matrix - ground substance is made of chondrin - firm, hard but pliable - holes in the cartilage lacunae • contains the cells • no direct blood supply - there is a membrane surrounding known as the perichondrium which contains blood vessels - nutrients must diffuse into the cartilage and waste diffuses out • three types of cartilage: hyaline, elastic and fibrocartilage 1. - hyaline cartilage - firm but pliable, contains closely packed collagenous fibers and glassy appearance • function: supports and reinforces - resilient and cushioning, resists compressive stress • location: - costal cartilage involved in attaching the ribs to sternum reticular cartilage at the ends of bones, provides smooth - surface for the joints - in trachea so when we breathe in, the air comes in without collapsing • 2. fibrocartilage - more elastic fibers than hyaline so it is compressible (like a mattress - if you push down it springs back) - location: intervertebral discs - if you jump, the fibrocartilage will compress then go back to its normal shape • 3. elastic cartilage - very high concentration of elastic fibers - function: allows flexibility but still maintains shape/structure - location: external ear, epiglottis The Integumentary System - Chapter 5 - consists of skin, hair, nails, glands, nerves (associated with the skin) - general functions - where our body meets the outside world • protection: - from bacteria - cannot enter unless there is a wound in the skin - from UV from the sun • waterproof - outside water rolls off, keeps the water we need inside without evaporation • regulation of body temperature - sweating to cool down • can excrete substances like NaCl and urea • involved in sensation with the nerves •
